Probably no other part of my computer is more heavily used than DRUDGE. I'm on and off that site more than 10-hours a day. But as the months go by I'm more reluctant to open it up in the morning.
DRUDGE is a snapshot of the world's social, political, and military condition. And, that's the problem; for me, visiting the site is like having a bucket of ice water tossed in my face. I anticipate that confrontation but it doesn't make it any more welcome.
I'm talking about bad news, really bad news. More specifically, news demonstrating the accelerating state of our country's demise. Because, as I see it, I'm watching America undergo a spiritual, cultural, material, and military collapse at the hands of resurgent Leftist, communist, and other anti-Judeo-Christian factions. They have a death grip on our country and have invited every sort of anti-religious rot to infect the nation's institutions, beginning with the family.
Ironically, most traditional Judeo-Christian organizations readily admit this; they see it all happening, but seem impotent to correct the situation. All of our defense and intelligence agencies (FBI, CIA, Joint Chiefs of Staff), sound the alarm, without effect. We are without leadership - we are asleep.
Anyone paying attention to world affairs must recognize the growing power of our enemies (Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, Jihadist Islam) (which is a majority of Muslim believers - NOT a small minority which we are constantly led to believe, but an enormous majority in Islamic nations) see Ben Shapiro:
Most Americans are blind to America's vulnerability. Our military is now too weak to withstand multiple attacks, even against our homeland. We have been betrayed by Obama's enemy-friendly "leadership". Nuclear commander lost job after being caught playing fake poker chips....
I believe America will soon suffer multiple, devastating attacks on our military, infrastructure, financial, communications, food and health sectors, which will "fundamentally change" us forever. A solution: pray - pray very hard and often.

Many Fillmore residents were unhappy to find out that they could not attend the swearing-in ceremonies of both Fillmore City Council members and our new School Board.
A strong effort was made to have the school board ceremony set for any day but December 9 because that was the city's regularly scheduled time to meet.
A suggestion was made to have a joint swearing-in ceremony on the 9th, but that too was rejected by the School Board president, without explanation. That possibility would have given everyone an opportunity to witness, and take photos, of both ceremonies. It would also have been a nice token of cooperation between the city's two most important governing bodies.
It's a shame both ceremonies were forced to take place on the same evening in two separate venues. The Gazette, of course, could not attend both, so we have no story of the District event, and, but for pictures provided by Todd Schieferle, we would also have no photos of the historical event. Thanks go out to Mr. Schieferle for his generosity.
Two newly-elected Board members each tried to facilitate a solution to this simple problem, without success.
I hope this childish lack of cooperation on the part of the School Board president doesn't point to a future of micro-management.
Memo: It's a new beginning. Let's start out on the right foot.

I'm having a hard time settling down today; some good news (Thank you Lord for the rain) and some bad, as usual.
For those of you who think I'm too preoccupied with military defense, I offer you this bit of news. At least this was news to me considering the mostly unreported facts. The story was first reported by Russian radio. Here's a link to the full story: What frightened the USS Donald Cook so much in the Black ... http://www.voltairenet.org/article185860.html
In short, our most sophisticated destroyer, USS Donald Cook, was posted to the Black Sea to monitor Russia's aggression against the Ukraine, et al. The Cook has our most up-to-date electronic surveillance equipment. A Russian fighter-bomber approached the Cook, was warned off but ignored the warning. It then circled the Cook at very low altitude, causing all of the Cook's radar and other tracking equipment to go black. In the words of witnesses, the Cook was deaf and blind. This was due to the unarmed Russian plane's jamming equipment.
If the Russians can do this, right now, how safe are our carrier battle groups? How safe are our land missiles?
But wait! How secure are our Minuteman missiles? After a string of appalling reports of negligent maintenance, we hear about this: Nuclear commander lost job after being caught playing fake ... http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/11248777/Nucl... ... The Daily Telegraph Nov 23, 2014 - Vice-Admiral Timothy Giardina Photo: AP Photo/U.S. Navy "... known as Navy Tim, a heavy gambler who was accused of making his own $500 poker chips and eventually banned. ... America's nuclear weapons general sacked." And he was second-highest in command!
Moving right along to domestic challenges, we're finally hearing from responsible black commentators, like Former NBA star Charles Barkley, award winning economist Thomas Sowell, Dr. Ben Carson http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Carson and many other distinguished African-Americans about the Ferguson scandal. Barkley calls the rioters "scumbags". Each of them stands-up for officer Wilson and defend our police officers, which our President and Attorney General do not. The truth in this matter is that Brown was a felon and a thug and officer Wilson was a good cop doing his job by the numbers. Who thinks of his future after being completely slandered? He must now move from place to place for his safety.
By Martin Farrell — Tuesday, November 25th, 2014
I've changed my mind about American cities and towns owning heavy military vehicles like armored HUMVES and MRAPs. That's because I've come to believe that lawless civilians like those we watched plan and methodically launch the riots in Ferguson, Missouri and other cities across the country, are a growing menace to our freedoms. I also believe rioters share the same mindset (and pose the same threat) to national security and defense as street gangs, motorcycle gangs, drug traffickers, ethnic gangs, etc. They are all terrorists bent on killing people and destroying property. They are all determined to gain power at the expense of law-abiding citizens.
There are millions of these terrorists in country when you include unaligned common criminals. For example, The County and City of Los Angeles are the â€śgang capitalâ€ť of the nation." The Federal Bureau of Investigation states: Some 33,000 violent street gangs, motorcycle gangs, and prison gangs with about 1.4 million members are criminally active in the U.S. today.
As someone who has followed the problem for two decades, I believe our country is in imminent danger of possibly catastrophic attack by China, Russia, Iran, and/or North Korea. America's home grown terrorists will be a significant addition to the problem.
Our nation's civil law enforcement will face the same enemy as our military. It will need this sort of equipment to overcome the enemy, especially at our borders. My only concern is to guarantee this heavy equipment, in vehicles and firearms, is never used against the law-abiding American citizen. This has already happened in a few instances.
So, to meet the threat head-on, our police forces must now have modern, military equipment.
If it happens that we the people begin to lose our freedom due to misuse of such equipment I believe a violent revolution will occur.
This all sounds like fiction to some folks but our enemies take these issues very seriously.
On a happier note, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

Congratulations and best wishes to Councilman Steve Conaway on retirement after 9 years of service to the City of Fillmore. He stood his ground and was right in his judgments. I'm proud to call him a friend as well.

Tomorrow Obama is supposed to announce his executive order on immigration.
This will be an unconstitutional act amounting to an extreme abuse of power for which he should be impeached, tried, convicted and removed from office.
No chance of this happening, however. Instead, we can expect to see this charlatan double-down on a series of destructive and unlawful executive orders for the remaining two years of his term in office. He is determined to cause as many crises as possible, a strategy straight out of his mentor's infamous handbook "Rules for Radicals". Saul Alinski was his main mentor, as he was also for Hillary Clinton.
Here is Rule 8 of Alinski's 12 Rules for Radicals: â€śKeep the pressure on. Never let up. Keep trying new things to keep the opposition [conservatives] off balance. As the opposition masters one approach, hit them from the flank with something new. (Attack, attack, attack from all sides, never giving the reeling organization a chance to rest, regroup, recover and re-strategize.)"
So the unconstitutional attacks will increase and escalate for the next two years, while America's strength diminishes in the face of our enemies. Those enemies will not be able to resist the opportunity to attack our nation while Obama renders us nearly defenseless. If illegal immigration is already bringing confusion and incapacity to our schools, medical facilities, tax system, welfare and defense systems, wait until you see the tsunami of illegal humanity which will quickly overwhelm our southern border. Shades of Alinski, "attack, attack, attack.
Our domestic enemies are using the same Alinski strategy in Ferguson, Missouri. The police officer in that case is obviously innocent of any wrong. The young man who was killed was, again obviously, a strong-arm robber, drug user, who attacked the officer trying to get his gun. The president and his attorney general, and their crooked minions have greatly contributed to the expectation of violence after the grand jury returns its verdict because of their support for the perpetrator. This is all extraordinarily outrageous.http://www.cbsnews.com/ferguson-missouri-police-shooting-protests/
The president and his flying monkey air corps have so weakened America that our primary enemies will not resist the opportunity during the next two years to attack. Domestically, Alinski has given the order from his grave. All of our most determined and capable enemies, Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, are all nuclear capable and itching to go.
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, November 12th, 2014
I'm convinced that there will be no end to Obama's lethal, nation-endangering, buffoonery. When the Republicans take over congress a laundry list of critical changes await them, like the Keystone Pipeline, eliminating Obamacare, buttoning-up our borders, etc. But none are as urgent as rebuilding our defense capabilities. We are surrounded by a pack of lean and salivating wolves (Russia, China, Iran, North Korea and a score of their mongrel cousins like ISIS.
America has never before faced such threatening odds to our freedom; at least not since the Revolutionary War when the whole idea of a United States of America was nearly snuffed-out in its infancy. We have survived many wars through our strength - moral and military.
Our present deadly exposure is caused by the Leftist-liberal policies placed into our government by a gum-chewing man in purple pajamas now presenting himself as President of the United States of America to our arch-enemy, China. A short while back he was whispering sweet nothings to a leader of a different arch-enemy, Russia; "After I'm reelected I will have more flexibility" [to betray my country]. Then there's the recent revelation of "secret letters" to our most mentally unbalanced arch-enemy, Iran, facilitating its nuclear bomb program.
As Obama chewed his way through the reception line his host was presenting their latest stealth fighter, the J-31, China's answer to the United States' F-35, which is nearly an exact copy - do to China's superb hacking capabilities.
Meanwhile, Russian bombers will soon conduct regular patrols, ranging from the Arctic to the Gulf of Mexico.
Can it be that the American government has become too stupid to recognize the obvious fact that our enemies plan to attack America, soon? How many failures have been reported concerning incompetence in our Air Force ICBM maintenance?
But wait! We seem distracted instead by reports such as "Man pleads not guilty to lewd act with stuffed animal inside WALMART."
Thanks to congressional and presidential stupidity, intransigence and incompetence, it is now more than plausible that we will suffer a nuclear attack - with all those arch-enemies joining in the fun.
The new Republicans had damn well better get their priorities right!
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, November 5th, 2014
I could scarcely believe what I was seeing last night as the Obama political scaffolding began to crash to the ground. Republicans captured the Senate and picked-up perhaps as many as 12 new seats in the House.
Church bells across America should be ringing; the wicked Obama administration is as good as dead. Nothing but good can come of this.
In Utah "Congresswoman elect Mia Love celebrated her surprise victory... as the first black Republican woman to be elected to the House of Representatives." In her exuberant remarks after winning, she said: â€śI wasn't elected because of the color of my skin. I wasn't elected because of my gender, I was elected because of the solutions that I put at the table because I promised I would run a positive issues-oriented campaign and that's what resonated.â€ť
God bless Mia Love.
And from Columbia, South Carolina: "South Carolina voters have sent Republican Tim Scott back to the U.S. Senate, making him the first black candidate to win a statewide race since just after the Civil War."
Halleluiah! How sweet it is!
This was a tsunami win for traditional conservatism. Now, perhaps, our nation can regain its strength, equilibrium and purpose. We have given ourselves a second chance to show the world that Obama has never spoken for true Americans, that the shameful weakness he shows in the face of the enemy is his alone, that America is still the strongest and freest nation on earth.
This is also the long-awaited time for America to regroup, to restore our armed forces, create a new, fair, flat tax system that cannot morph into a fourth arm of government for any administration. It's time to secure our borders and crush our Islamic juhadist enemies wherever they may be. It's time to settle the score against the Orks, the ISIS baby killers who sell women into slavery and force young girls to convert to Islam and marry their captors.
In short, this election mandates that America become strong and confident again to face our domestic problems with creativity, and defeat our enemies utterly with our traditional strength.
It's also time to trash the disease of Political Correctness, to end Obama's apologies for American exceptionalism, and to thank God for making America exceptional among all the nations of the world.
Lastly, this election was a rejection of Barack Obama, not a salute to Republicans. The Republican party needs to find the guts to do what must be done, to speak out forcefully and clearly about what they will do - then to DO it. If they fail in this they deserve to be wiped from America's political history never to be heard from again. It is no exaggeration to state that the survival of Western civilization hangs in the balance.

We mourn with the men and women of the Ventura County Sheriffâ€™s Office at the loss Deputy Eugene Kostiuchenko who was killed in the line of duty yesterday (October 28). An 11-year veteran of the department, he leaves his wife and two sons. May he rest in peace. God bless and console his family members.
Only a few days remain for the American people to rescue their nation from further destruction by President Obama and his Leftist-Democrat agenda. Obama still has two years in which to complete his plan of undermining America's strength and freedom. We must re-build our armed forces, support Israel and the Kurds, and counter attack Islamic Jihadists everywhere. Snatching the US Senate back from radical Democratic hands is the only short-term action that will get the job done. I, especially urge our Evangelical patriots to vote on November 4. Every vote is critically important to the survival of our nation.
Locally - I wholeheartedly endorse JEFF GORELL for Congress.
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014
For what it's worth, I endorsed three school board candidates last week, and criticized one candidate, Tony Prado. I met with Tony this week to sort-out some issues.
He clearly disagrees with my characterization of his behavior while a member of the board during the past several years. I don't want to rehash the disagreement but I do want to correct one comment I made. I just learned that the Gazette was sending its candidate questions to Mr. Prado's old email address. Therefore he did not receive them. He has also been on vacation for several weeks. That problem is now corrected.
My only serious objection to Mr. Prado's candidacy pertains to his disrespectful behavior in addressing members of the public, especially during public comment times. I stand on this criticism, which is in no way meant to be personal. As I said last week, Tony Prado is a good man, just not the right man for the school board.
* * *
More about our City Council candidates next week, but I can strongly endorse Diane McCall and Carrie Broggie, both with impressive records.
* * *
Kudos to our new school Superintendent Adrian Palazuelos. He has taken over his job with energy and enthusiasm. He has also implemented a new digital program for our district. Now our agendas will be distributed digitally.
Last but not least, he assured me that attention would be paid to the Rosemary hedge in front of the district office sign. Lack of irrigation is killing the hedge which is nearly as old as the building itself. I'm not much of a gardener but I would hate to see it die-off.
As long as I'm on the subject of plant life I should mention that one of two large tree directly in front of the school district office, is dead due to lack of irrigation as well. It's an old tree with very heavy limbs which could fall in a wind storm. For safety sake it should be removed. The other tree is barely making it.
* * *
I wish I had the time to comment on Islamic terror around the world but I don't. Suffice it to say, contrary to our lying president, we are at war with Islam, at least with 25 percent of Islam, and always will be, according to the commands of their holy book. We should keep in mind, as Brigitte Gabriel notes emphatically, the 75 percent of peaceful Muslims "are irrelevant" and remain very quiet. We should address the 25 percent - nearly 300 million jihadists.
I strongly recommend Ms. Gabriel's latest book "They Must Be Stopped".
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, October 15th, 2014
Running late, again, this week. I just have time to make a few short comments.
First, it was difficult to adequately cover both the school board candidate forum and the city council candidate forum because both were scheduled to run consecutively on the same evening. This was an inconvenient format for those who wanted to attend both forums. Some had to leave early. That said, the forums were run very efficiently and professionally. Kudos to Scott Lee who moderated the first school district forum at the Middle School. Thanks also to Bill Herrera who moderated the second school board forum, sponsored by Fillmore City Council and One Step a la Vez.
I want to note that I received a telephone call from school board candidate Lucy Rangel. Mrs. Rangel denies some of the (paraphrased) comments attributed to her in last week's Gazette. In particular, she denies stating "...trust more and question less." I wish the entire Forum were taped, but it was not. I must rely upon notes taken at the time by our reporter, and at the same time give notice of Mrs. Rangel's objections.
Election Day is only a few weeks away. I attended both of our school board forums. With the exception of candidates Sean Morris and Mike Saviers, I've known the candidates for several years and observed their actions on the board many times. I have no serious problems with any of them, except for Tony Prado.
Observing Mr. Prado's demeanor as a board member over the years I must, emphatically, decline to endorse him for another term on the Fillmore School District Board of Directors.
Mr. Prado is a good man, but he completely lacks a sense of collegiality. He has a tendency to bully and browbeat others. His demanding (often angry) personality can be offensive to the point of being insulting. On more than one occasion, Mr. Prado has publically stated that he makes no apologies for his unfriendly behavior.
Mr. Prado has never condescended to answer candidate forum questions in the local newspaper. He is the only candidate to complain about other candidates displaying election signs around town. However, Prado fliers are to be found on windshields in parking lots. In short, Prado is a disagreeable man who tends to destroy cooperation on the board.
I warned against his candidacy the year he happened to win by a handful of votes, and I warn against his candidacy again this year for the same reasons.
The Fillmore School District Board of Directors NEEDS NEW BLOOD.
With the exception of Mr. Prado, I respect the service all present school board members have provided these past four years. But it's time for change, for new ideas and perspectives. Therefore I enthusiastically endorse and support three new candidates, Scott Beylik, Sean Morris and Mike Saviers. Each answered the forum questions clearly and with confidence. These candidates will create a thoughtful new balance on the board.
Next week the candidates will be asked to answer a novel question which pertains to commitment. Our school library is hurting badly and lacks a librarian. School board members serve without compensation, except for medical coverage. According to District records, the Board is provided approximately $55,000 per year, or $10,934.10 per member, in health benefits.
Question: Which board members (if any) would be willing to forego this insurance in order to donate the proceeds of $55,000 to the Fillmore Library? This will be one of next week's candidate questions.

As I write these words, the Kurdish residents of the Syrian town of Kobane (population 44,821 in the Syrian census of 2004) are being overrun by ISIS Muslim cutthroats. The usual Islamic butchery will quickly follow: beheadings of children, crucifixions, impalements, etc.
As acknowledged many times, America has only two friends in the Middle East, Israel and the Kurds. Both have been betrayed by a craven Obama administration. The Kurds, who have fought valiantly for the US, have not received the arms and ammunition promised by Obama to help defend against ISIS. Because of this betrayal they are now being overwhelmed by the ISIS enemy which they could otherwise defeat. Even the Kurdish women have taken-up arms against the ISIS aggressors who seek to rape, enslave, torture, and mutilate them. The Kurds are courageous and deserving of our help.
The Turks, with their huge army 200 yards from the carnage in Kobane, do nothing - and they are members of NATO. Turkish President Erdogan (a long-time Brotherhood member) seeks to make Turkey the "real" caliphate. Turkey is no longer dependably secular. It is becoming a Sharia-law state. From a western perspective, Turkey's refusal to honor NATO requests for intervention in Kobane is shameful. Turkey is no longer a trustworthy NATO member. When their historical enemies, the Kurds, are defeated, Turkey will go after ISIS.
All of this endless butchery by ISIS is, of course, the result of US presidential cowardice. Last night's extraordinary interview of Obama's former Defense Secretary, Leon Panetta, by TV commentator Bill O'Reilly, clearly revealed the facts. Obama is not a leader; he is fearful of leadership, rejects the most professional advice, clings to the advice of Valerie Jarred and his wife's, and remains an implacable far Left ideologue.
Our nation, therefore, is in imminent jeopardy, the clear and present danger of our closet Muslim president who can see no evil, hear no evil, of Islam, the free world's greatest and most deadly enemy.
"...and that what we [the US] stands for â€“-- liberty and democracy and conservation and fairness and justice -- those are the things that people around the world aspire to and seek, and they expect the United States to be on their side." (President O'Bama's recent speech).
From his mouth, these words are an infamous joke. Pray for the Kurds of Kobane. They need help, not empty words.
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, October 1st, 2014
There was a slight mix-up in sending out questions for city council candidates to answer this week. Question #1 was sent to candidate Carrie Broggie as a dot/com instead of a dot/org, and she did not receive it. Answers from all candidates will appear online this week at fillmoregazette.com.

Monday, I attended the most beautiful funeral in my memory. It was the day they laid to rest Jim Stehly, beloved spouse of Mary Stehly, father to eleven children, and farmer extraordinaire.
It was a particularly beautiful day. Jim's family, relatives, and friends filled the church to capacity, flowing outside into the garden area. Fr. James Stehly, Jim's eldest son, said the Mass of Christian Burial. The music was inspiring and those in attendance were of one mind, to come together for the purpose of publically recognizing this special man and saying goodbye for the last time.
In these chaotic times it refreshes the soul to find in the life of a man like Jim Stehly such peace, humility, and faithfulness.
Among countless others, I feel blessed to have known Jim.
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, September 17th, 2014
James Joseph Stehly passed into eternal life yesterday. I will remember him always as a great man because he was such a good man. I will miss his kindly, joyful presence.
When I first came to Fillmore some 26 years ago I quickly recognized that name and presence. I could hardly believe it. Mr. Stehly was in charge of my platoon at St. Catherine's Military School in Anaheim, (then, the most pristine little town I can ever recall) when I was in the sixth and seventh grades. What memories that reawakened; Major Schmidt, parade grounds, demerits, and measles in the infirmary. This in the years 1951 and '52.
Mr. Stehly was highly respected as the young "civilian" man responsible for keeping order in our ranks. As I grew to know Jim since coming to Fillmore I have to smile when I think back to those days long ago. With all the attempted shenanigans amongst the cadets, we did not get by with much when "Mr. Stehly" was in charge. It was a privilege to be reacquainted with this gentle, upright man almost 60 years later.
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, September 10th, 2014
We are rightly preoccupied with all the growing terrorist threats to our country. And maybe, just maybe, the president will tell us all tomorrow that he has awakened to the clear and present danger that ISIS represents to America.
It would be too much to expect him to admit that behind all of the murderous global terror movements is Islam. Not "radical" Islam, there is no such thing. Islam, according to its founding book, the Koran, was created in the seventh century to subdue the entire world by force. A Muslim must believe every word of the Koran (without change) as the direct, inerrant, absolute word of god, or he is deemed apostate, and must be killed. "Moderate Islam" is a non sequitur, the two words contradict each other, since Islam is about submission of all unbelievers to the dictates of the Koran. It is a religious-socio-political system of perpetual struggle (until the End of Days). Even the intra -Islamic disagreements (Sunni, Shi'ite, and others) can never end without the complete annihilation of heretics, apostates, and unbelievers, as defined by the surviving sect. Outsiders see it as a perpetual murder mechanism.
Therefore, peace, according to Jihadist Islam, will only come when the non-Muslim world of some 6 billion souls is "subdued" by the likes of ISIS.
Mr. President, your job, and highest moral duty, is to launch a military force sufficient to annihilate ISIS to the last of its baby killers.
By Martin Farrell — Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014
The leader of the free world, the President of the United States, the Commander in Chief of all vaunted American armed forces, met with our NATO allies in Eastern Europe this week. He sought to assure them of American strength and assistance against ISIS which now plays varsity instead of JVs.
It's certain that his fearless rhetoric struck terror into the hearts of Satan's army, and gave the headhunters pause, while our allies were reassured of our superpower abilities. Here's a sample of his thinking: "We know that if we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL's sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities to the point where it is a manageable problem". And, "... the question is going to be making sure we've got the right strategy" [admittedly he has no strategy]. "This is something that is a continuation of a problem we've seen certainly since 9/11..." Actually since about 632 A.D. We should act "before it [ISIS] continues to metastasize..." You're too late. It already has, globally. [And we must organize]... "the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world, along with the international community to isolate this cancer". The object at hand is not to "isolate" these roaches. The object is to KILL them all. Why? Read: http://www.satyablog.org/2014/08/26/isis-beheading-children-and-women-af...
What fool can believe there is no Satan? Except for innocent men and women, there is solid precedence for justice here: 1 Samuel 15:3

There is so much bad news to deal with every day, much of it directly related to the startling and dangerous incompetence of the Obama administration, that I'm becoming tired of commenting on it. Despite his flood of lies, misrepresentations, and betrayals of trust, one campaign promise our Commander in Chief has assiduously kept was to "fundamentally" change America.
Six years ago most of us couldn't conceive of what this transformation would involve. With Obama's absolute absence of experience and achievement even remotely relevant to running the nation's foreign and domestic affairs, who knew the kind of mischief he had in mind. Who knew what a provocative collection of equally incompetent clowns were to gather around POTUS's cabinet table?
Chuck Hagel at Defense?! Joined at the hip to Obama with bonds of cluelessness. Someone just recently surprised to learn that ISIS is a clear and present danger to US security. He learned that fact from Fox News. He sees an urgent need to recruit Transgenders into our military. To hell with the 99.99 percent of our military members who espouse normal, traditional Judeo-Christian morals. He wants more psychologically troubled "Warrior Princesses". See statements from Dr. Paul R. McHugh, former psychiatrist-in-chief for Johns Hopkins Hospital and its current Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry.
John Kerry at State?! Another denier of the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is a primary Muslim enemy of the US. and someone who believes Islam is a religion of peace. Another naive dud.
Eric Holder as AG?! A serial liar and generally acknowledged to be the greatest crook ever to occupy that powerful office. He refuses to execute the law. Like Obama, a hater of our Constitution.
As Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, another obsequious toady of Obama's. This is a man in charge of the most diverse number of the nation's most important departments, including our Coast Guard. Just another Obama Leftist ideologue. Leftist ideology is the strongest tie that binds the whole Obama administration together.
I'm out of space. It's not ISIS and all its satanic, bloodthirsty Muslim Jihadi associates that presents America's most dangerous enemy today. That distinction belongs to our own Leftist president, Barack Obama. I predict we shall learn just how dangerous he and his Leftist ideologues will prove to be before December of 2016.
America's "fundamentals" lie in her Judeo-Christian heart, which needs protection against the foreign degeneracy of the Obama Left.

Our new school Superintendent, Dr. Adrian E. Palazuelos, already has things well in hand. This was obvious to me after participating in last night's board meeting. He has a clear plan for improving student academic achievement, and a strong sense of the importance of lively communications between teachers, staff, parents, students, and the city at large. I also got a sense of Dr. Palazuelos' enthusiastic determination to see things through.
As for care of school grounds, I have to make a sad recommendation. One of the two large trees directly in front of the District office has apparently died from past neglect. The tree should be removed soon because the heavy branches pose a serious danger.

The slaughter in Iraq continues but Obama says we've done enough and that America is tired of war. Really? America, you haven't seen anything yet. If I may borrow some Biblical terminology, Satan's army has recently captured a large part of both Syria and Iraq. The demons claim statehood; they call it a Caliphate. Their stated mission is to conquer the entire non-Muslim world, killing all Jews and Christians, and other "Infidels" who refuse to convert to Islam. The women and children are being sold into sex slavery, the men murdered. James Foley, journalist captured by ISIL, was beheaded yesterday with threats for more. Putin "spits" in Obama's face; http://nypost.com/tag/james-wright-foley/China, North Korea, Iran, and, with a lean and hungry eye, the entire Muslim Middle East mock our Commander in Chief for his weakness. This seems to be one community Obama cannot seem to organize.
Aren't you liberal Democrats proud to have elected this gutless, clueless "man" to "lead" our nation?

In attending last night's council meeting I was struck with the professionalism, courteous atmosphere, and businesslike agenda accomplishments. Even the decades-long confrontation concerning Equestrian Park issues were resolved amicably to the applause of many in attendance.
It's great to have adults running city business once again.
World affairs are now so maniacally violent and out of control, ironically, only sudden and massively greater violence can prevent the wholesale disruption of Western Civilization.
Those of us who were able to avoid government education and expensive private liberal university educations can still recall what Western Civ. was all about. In large part we studied the history of the human race and how, what started with Greece and Rome, eventually changed mankind from a state of devil-worshiping barbarism to Judeo-Christian civilization, which grew in wisdom and freedom.
It was not all smooth sailing. The transition was slow and painful, suffering much brutal opposition. During what historians now refer to as "late antiquity", around the time of the fall of the Roman Empire, civilization's greatest enemy arose from the sterile desert sands of Arabia. This enemy of civilization was eventually called Islam and it's single goal was to subdue all mankind by the sword. Join, pay a tax, or die.
It was very easy to join the group, but if you decided to leave you would be killed. In essence, the purpose of this organization was to kill all human beings who refused to join their ranks, which it has been doing since the 7th Century. Seeking booty in gold and slaves Islam became the bloody scourge of all who saw in it implacable evil. Some (incorrectly) see Islam as a variant of Judeo-Christian beliefs. Properly understood, however, its teachings are diametrically opposed to those of both Old and New Testaments, despite the fact that the Koran is filled with names and historical references from the Bible.
The Judeo-Christian God is omnipotent (all powerful) but also a personal and loving God. It is otherwise in Islam. Muslim believers are commanded to convert, enslave, or kill "non-believers" without distinction of age, sex, or any other characteristic. Very many practices in Islam are strictly forbidden to Christians and Jews under penalty of eternal damnation to hell. Christians and Jews, for example, cannot kidnap women and girls and sell them into sex slavery, or behead children, which Muslim believers do every day. The Devil demands these things, but the Judeo-Christian God forbids these things.
So, whether we fight Boco Harem, Hamas, the so-called Islamic Caliphate, or Muslim Brotherhood murderers, we fight to defend the blessings of freedom in Western Civilization. If we don't fight these satanic killers we abandon millions of innocent "non-believers" to a gruesome and bloody fate - which is un-Judeo-Christian.
It's time for an all-out, sustained aerial war against these child rapists and slavers in Iraq. Time to lay down the golf clubs Obama. Time to come out and fight, for God's sake!

With friends like Obama, Israel has no need of other enemies.
Following his lifelong pro-Muslim, anti-Jewish agenda, our fearless leader has finally succeeded in truly endangering America's ONLY Middle Eastern friend and sole democracy.
Barack Obama has repeatedly shown himself as friend of our enemies and enemy of our friends. He has set the tone (and example) for reinvigorated, murderous anti-Semitism worldwide. So it doesn't surprise me to hear reports of a recent telephone conversation between Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama (or Secretary Kerry) which ended abruptly with one side slamming down the phone. I hope and trust it was "Bibi" who unceremoniously ended the call.
The White House, and its troupe of Hamas flying monkey abettors, deserve nothing less than that contemptuous reply. Make no mistake about it, Obama has switched sides in the middle of the war, much like the deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, so warmly received by our Commander in Chief at the White House.
I've said before that Obama's actions and failures to act, in crucial foreign and domestic affairs, clearly indicate his hatred for America as it has functioned for the past 200-plus years. The fundamental changes he has repeatedly promised to inflict upon our country are quickly bringing America to her knees in the face of an implacable, satanic jihadist enemy. If America had a parliamentary system rather than a democratic republican one, Obama would have been thrown out of office shortly after the beginning of his second term. It takes a long time for the American electorate to wake up and smell the lies and betrayals.
America should thank God Israel is our friend - and act like it! Let's all assist in crushing this newly awakened, vile anti-Semitism. Peace will only come with the utter crushing of Hamas and its Devilish cohorts.
